#EndSARS: Obaseki gives escaped inmates 48hours to return | Nigerian News. Latest Nigeria News. Your online Nigerian Newspaper. f



The Governor of Edo State, Godwin Obaseki, has issued a 48-hour ultimatum to inmates who escaped from the Medium Security Correctional Centres on Sapele Road and Oko, Airport Road, to return to the prisons.


Some hoodlums had hijacked the #EndSARS protests and attacked the two prisons and freed about 2,000 inmates.


While inspecting the two correctional facilities today, Obaseki said the freed inmates must return before this Friday.


In a statement signed by his Special Adviser on Media and Communication Strategy, Crusoe Osagie, he made it clear that criminal elements caused unrest in the State.


“We know some of the inmates have been released, but we appeal to all inmates who have escaped to come back on their own before the close of business on Friday.


 “They should report themselves back as nothing will be done to them but failure to do that, we will come after them as we have their records,” the statement read in part.

  1. Useless Obaseki, If you (Obaseki) happened to be one of the inmates illegally and justly remanded in prison for years without trials, will you return back after the prison break? You guys just open your mouths wide as it is and think you are talking to fools and idiots. Shame on you all, the youths are coming for you one after the other. All your efforts (good & bad) while in government will be greatly rewarded. If only you fools know what is ahead, you all will resign and take to your heels.
